Because I work with stripes and remnants often, I cut single-layer. A WIDE cutting surface was on my wish list. If I'm working on a small project, I only need to use the side facing the living room. Bad Dad chops veggies on the corner near the stove; the trash can pulls out right underneath that corner. We put in Cat 6 data ports on the HVAC column to the right so Iris can sit on a bar stool and surf the web on the other side.

There is no point in buying good dishes when some will eventually make their way to this kitchen. In the interim, I eat on thrifted or hand-me-down dishes, which fit in the glass-front cabinets over the dishwasher. Hmm, I wonder if patterns would fit in the drawers?

|Shallower drawer holds smaller form-factor patterns.|
Everything fits perfectly--as long as I don't buy any more patterns. If I buy one, I have to chuck one. But, I'll never part with any of my vintage Issey Miyake patterns. Yipes, I already showed IM coveters on the interwebs where I live. I'm going to have to buy a fireproof safe for those collectible patterns. If you search for IM patterns from the 1980s on eBay, you know that I need to find a safer place for those.
* The kitchen is not yet done. I'm using a loaner range while waiting for my back-ordered range. The final counter section will be installed after the permanent range arrives. We're also waiting for the false door panels to complete the island. I'll post more complete photos when it's done.
